    The guide of the wine cellar tour was good. We learnt a lot about the port wine, and its difference from the regular wine. We enjoyed the fado performance a lot. The music and songs were so touching. It is so enjoyably to listen to the music while we were served with port wine, which tasted so good.

    This experience was short and sweet. The staff at the venue spoke English very well and were very accommodating to me as a pregnant guest. They provided me with juice whilst everyone else had Port, which was a nice gesture. The tour guide gave a clear and concise explanation about the Ports they manufactured and the process behind it. The Fado Show was good but it would’ve been just as good with only 3-4 songs. Then there would’ve been time to have an explanation on the Ports they provided for tastings. Also it would’ve been nice to have cheese or olives with the crackers at the tasting.

    It was a beautiful night in the harbor of Vila Nova de Gaia, with a big group of foreigners. The guide was knowledgeable and have sense of humor. It’s a wonderful tour at night near the river. The price is the best tour in the caves, music and wine tasting.
